Background

We were contacted by Peepal Mortgages, who are one of our long standing Client’s, to help move their office and ready the environment for working. We came to their new offices to carry out a full site survey and advise on what networks they would require. Due to requiring a period of parallel running we opted for a dual network with dual ISP connectivity to provide separate networks for both voice and data. The voice systems were provided by InTouch Communications of Farnborough.

The data network was setup as 1Gbps using a TP-Link 24 port unmanaged switch and voice as 100Mbps POE using a 24 port Netgear unmanaged switch to power the phones. The Wi-Fi is provided as 5Ghz AC standard using the latest encryption and all cabling runs are shielded cat6.

To provide backups to all computers we installed a low powered Buffalo 2TB raid 1 NAS drive and setup the scheduled jobs to run throughout the day.
